|Carriganass Castle, Kealkill
The distances & times shown here are in one direction only.
This short linear walk starts at Carriganass Castle and travels along surfaced roads until you reach the access path to cross a field. It is an easy walk but mostly uphill.
Turn right, out of the castle grounds and then onto the main road, go right, towards Kealkill village. Watch out for traffic. Take a left, uphill into the village. The walk then takes you further uphill past the church. Follow the markers making a right turn beyond the church and a left turn after 0.5 km. This brings you up a steep hill on a winding road to the Stone Circle entrance which takes you off the road to your left, through a pedestrian gate. Follow the rough track through two fields until you get to the Stone Circle.
After visiting the site, you can return to the castle or extend your walk into the Mealagh Valley.
